Wimbledon 2011 Champion Novak Djokovic Receives Hero’s Welcome In Serbia

Wimbledon champion and new #1 player in the world, Novak Djokovic, received a hero’s welcome from what is being described as tens of thousands of fellow Serbians assembled at the National Assembly in Belgrade. He was escorted by bus from the airport to the square with many Serbians lining the way to catch a glimpse of their national hero. But it was upon arrival at the National Assembly that the crowds were packed, sparking a party and fireworks celebration that lasted late into the night. The trophy he carried is not the full size trophy they hand the winner on court. That stays at the All-England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. The winners get a smaller replica trophy.
